Newborn & Baby Photographer Oxford
Photography for Little People is the UK’s leading mobile portrait studio. We are an exclusive custom mobile photography studio specialising in newborn, pregnancy, baby, child and family photography.
Get to know me
Hi, my name is Paul Quirk and I’m a photographer who loves photographing people. I mainly work in the area defined by the OX and HP post codes, so Oxford, Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Hemel Hempstead and all the surrounding areas within the counties. I also specialise in baby and hand and foot casting or impressions which are framed beautifully.
I offer a unique service…a complimentary photo shoot in the comfort of your own home. This is especially important for those precious newborn days. Mummy is much more relaxed, and therefore so is baby making it easier to capture those sleepy curled up newborn images we all love.
In case you’d like to know a little more about me, I’m a Dad to two and proud Grandad to four wonderful grandchildren.
I am also a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and the Baby and Newborn Photography Association (BANPAS), which supports baby and newborn photographers across the UK and promotes safe working practices. I am trained in the art of newborn safety within photography. You can find out more about me and my work via facebook and other social media by clicking on the icon above.
How does it work?
I will bring my mini studio to you. I normally schedule appointments in the morning as baby is more settled.
Sessions run at baby’s pace and therefore are around 3 hours.
Your baby is the main focal point of your session.
I use minimal props and outfits to ensure your images are timeless and all about your baby.
I will not rush any baby and I follow their lead, I allow this time as you can never predict a newborn baby’s sleep or mood.
Following your baby’s photo session we will be able to view on the day. No waiting around or second appointments. I will bring with me my beautiful samples and together we can pick the best images for your choices of finished products. All products and images are to be chosen at this time.
Examples of beautiful framed photos
All of our images are printed onto the best quality paper that are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Using state of the art print technology. I work closely with our in house framing unit to produce specialist wall art for homes. Everything is made to order and to a fine art standard, you can be sure of the very best hand crafted products. I offer a beautiful range of designs to compliment your home; bespoke frames, impression frames, acrylics, canvas, fine art frames and the stunning alumini range for that extra wow factor.
Please contact me via the form for the full list of beautiful finished pieces.
Baby Hand & Feet Impressions
Our impression range is also especially beautiful, Photography for little People are the leading experts in the UK with our designs and at taking impressions of children’s hands and feet, the youngest baby to have their impressions taken was just 6 hours new. Your baby’s hand prints framed start at just £139.
The session is offered to you complimentary. I like my images to speak for themselves.
Should you however wish to order anything there is a minimum order fee of £179.
When is the best time to book and get newborn or baby photos taken?
I love photographing newborns and capturing amazing memories for my families. Every newborn photo shoot is unique and will go at baby’s pace. Newborns are best photographed between 3-10 days new. During this time the babies will usually retain some of the natural curl from when they were in the womb. The first week works best to get peaceful, sleepy and very curly poses.
When you book we will pencil in your due date and then we can agree the time and date when little one has arrived. I can only book limited number of newborns into my diary each month as we don’t know when they are going to arrive!
A £50 non refundable deposit is required in order to secure your booking which will be deducted from your final order.
Maternity “Bump” photo shoot
Pregnancy can be hard on some women, and you definitely earn your warrior badges for growing a little person. There is a strong connection between mother and baby and to capture that before they even make an appearance is a wonderful way to celebrate you and your amazing body (even if you aren’t feeling amazing right now!)
The best time to capture your bump is between 32-36 weeks pregnant. At this stage you have hopefully regained some energy, your bump is nice and round but you can still move around fairly easily. Partners are most welcome in the shoot. If you feel self-conscious please do not worry as there are many ways we can capture the bump and, if you wish, edit out any marks or blemishes.
As with the newborn photo shoot I ask for a £50 deposit.
Families and siblings
Siblings are welcome in both maternity and newborn sessions – and I am always happy to capture family portraits within your sessions. Do advise me in advance so we can plan it in. That first family photo, or the early blossoming of a sibling bond is wonderful to capture.
As they grow
I offer complimentary 3, 6 month shoots as well as first birthday sessions (portrait, cake smash, or paint splash) as well as older toddlers and family groups. As with maternity and newborn there are many ways you can chose to display your favourite images and discounted digital packages are available for repeat clients.
